    Ha ha!
    Daniel, you know I've got extra pistons lying around.
    PM me you address and I'll send you a couple. I'll make sure to include one with some battle scars beat into it :lmao:

    Hey, I've got 9 whole pistons (or maybe only 8 and a 1/2), I could make ash trays out of all of them and put them to good use :smirk:

    who wants one!
    :eater:

    Baz...how difficult was it to remove the crank bolt? Did you use/fabricate any specialized tools for that procedure besides brute strength? :D

    Looks great BAZ! I just fired-up my deflowered creampuff for the first time yesterday. So far so good. The ROE Diamond forged pistons seem to be just fine! Now have to work on the tuning for the 10 lb ROE.

    My goodness, now THAT is going to be one great looking engine!

    Adding the fuel pressure gauge?
    What airbox?
    What puke tank?
    Where is the VEC going and are you going to cover it?

    Oh yes, I didn't see the "Baster Fink" picture on the wall...Baz???

    Wow Baz, I knew you were handy but WOW! Congrats on the install. I guess if you own a Viper in Europe, you have to be somewhat handy! Good work!

    By the way, great job calling us at the meeting. That was a real surprise! Dimitrios and you had me cracking up!

    Going back a few steps... It looked as though the radiator was removed to allow removal of the camshaft. I've read that the cam can be removed with the radiator in place if the motor mounts are unbolted and the engine tilted up. Is it kind of a wash relative to the amount of effort (motor mounts vs radiator)?
    I'm asking since I'm undertaking a heads/cam swap this spring.
    Thanks.

    Obviously a cam change would be much simpler without removing the radiator. You wouldnt have to then go back and flush the lines of bubbles and the headache that goes along with that... So can a cam change be done without removing the radiator??? :dunno:
